About Us


The major goal of outreach and extension in the College of Human Ecology is to break down traditional boundaries between basic research, intervention research and extension/outreach in order to accelerate the application of research to people's lives. In order to achieve this goal, we operate within a model that fosters collaboration between researchers and community educators by encouraging them to work together to improve both research and practice. This translational research model contributes to Cornell's goal of developing "a unified concept and coherent organizational model for the university's outreach and public engagement mission."
